Forum rules as a sticky / Forum where Members cannot post, only view (Administrators can post)
Couldn't see a neat way of doing this, and as far as I could see - people have been having problems trying to do this as well.
Ideally, I want to put up 2-3 messages containing the Forum rules and updates on the Discussions page which is visible to everyone (including unauthenticated, banned, etc) BUT no one should be able to comment on those (only the Administrator can edit it subsequently).
I tried working my way around this by having a Category for Administrators only, but as you, more experienced ppl can see, it made the discussion _________* to everyone else! That was not the intended outcome!
Welcoming suggestions around this - I do want the forum rules to be visible to unauthenticated folks as well...
* invisible, in case you didn't get it!
